(STATEHOUSE) March 5, 2008 - "David was one of the most dedicated, honorable legislators I have had the pleasure of serving with. For most of my legislative career, we have served many of the same constituents. Senator Ford always placed the communities in his district as his highest legislative priority. I know of no other legislator who participated in more town meetings than David Ford. He constantly wanted know what his constituents were thinking on issues affecting Indiana.

"Even while working tirelessly for his district and our state, Senator Ford always kept his faith and his family as a high priority in his life. I am blessed to be able to call David Ford my colleague, as well as my friend for many years.

"His work in the Indiana General Assembly will be remembered and generations of Hoosiers will benefit from his outstanding work.

"Cyndy and I pray that God will comfort his wife and family for their loss of not only a great public servant, but a wonderful husband and father."
